I prefer the New American Standard Bible (NASB). When I was first beginning to seriously study the Bible I had an excellent, verse by verse, Bible teaching pastor. He used the NASB and said the reason was it was known in scholarly circles to be the best word for word translation available. I later learned that it was so good Greek students would sometimes used it to cheat. So, I bought a NASB and have used it ever since. I also use other translations though. I regularly use a Greek and English parallel version, the Amplified Bible and the KJ -- especially when I use my Strong's Concordance. My reason for so many translations is because I know they are all only translations and I want to get as close to the original thought as possible.
